What offset is the wheel available in?

Stock BBS is +30 I believe, although not an 8" width. Sticking close to the stock offset is a good idea but you wont get the flush look. My 8" wheels are +15. I had to roll the rear to fit 205/50R15 tires.

They will fit but might still need some roll on the rear depending on tire and ride height.

I have 17 x 7.5 front and 17 x 9 rear with a 25mm offset and I had to roll the rears. Just to give you an idea.
